I started off with a trip to Goldhawk Road on Wednesday, where I got three metres of this beautiful floral fabric, which may become an Anna dress or perhaps another dress.
I also picked up two metres of chambray, destined for another Kelly skirt or maybe a Moss mini (which I scored for 20% off in Grainline Studios Black Friday sale), along with this camo print for another skirt.
I was in a Christmassy mood, so I picked up two metres of pretty red plaid for a circle skirt for the holiday season! It seems to be already lined which is convenient!
I accidentally stumbled upon a fabric store with gorgeous fashion fabrics, precut. I chose this adorable bow print corduroy, a metre and a half, with which I'm hoping to squeeze out a skirt. Another Moss maybe?
My favourite purchase was found here as well, three metres of a navy polyester with a gold feather print, that is going to become a pretty fantastic dress, I hope.
My final craft stop was La Droguerie, an amazing craft shop in the middle of Old Lille. They had beautiful hand crafted yarns, beads, fabric and other notions. I managed to control myself and only picked up a few things. Firstly I chose some adorable bias bindings. I have no idea what I'll use them for but I couldn't resist. I could have bought so many more, they had an incredible variety!
Then I couldn't leave without getting some yarn, my only trouble was deciding! I eventually chose some bulky baby alpaca wool in pink and off-white, for a cowl. Being so soft, I want to use it for something where I'll appreciate it!
I think I'm going to be on a craft shopping ban for a while after getting all of that, but at least it will keep me busy for the rest of winter!
